Sorry if you have covered this story already!!

Just followed a link from AOL motoring to "What Car"
This is what they had to say about the scooby wrx in a recent car security test!!!!!

Subaru Impreza 45%

Such a desirable car could do with top-level security, so weíre disappointed to see the Impreza picking up less than half marks.
Itís fitted with deadlocks, locking wheelnuts and a unique-fit stereo, but itís easy get into the boot, there are no etched windows or any visible VIN.
The Subaruís locks also succumbed in just 51 seconds.

The following is the link to the full report, just copy and paste it into your browser bar:

http://www.whatcar.co.uk/News_SpecialReport.asp?NA_ID=204498&EL_ID=3040919

You will find it in section 4 small family cars.
Bit cr#p news really, so good of them to let all the car thieves know about it too.

It doesnt say what model though does it......

Thing is....any car car be broken in to in..ooooh.....a second. Its called smashing the window.

Problem is its yet another bit of quality press that helps nobody and will end up hurting a lot of people. Well done once more for the english press.

(incidentally im not having a go at you for posting as its a legitimate concern, just wish that the w**kers (press) didnt make it even easier for the budding thief)
